    [–] Trump claims he has 'absolute right' to order US companies out of China under 1977 law CaptainTripps82 1 points ago in worldnews

    I mean that's not true at all. The whole point of a representative democracy is to give power to someone to do things. In our system that power is given to the executive. It's literally his job to do stuff. It's congresses job to define what he can't and can't do, budget for it, etc. The president and Congress are the representatives, the democracy is the fact that we vote for them regularly That we are bad at voting is a our collective failure. It doesn't negate the fact that we choose who we cede power to.

    That's not at all true. Most of what the executive does is actually done via Congressional action. Budgets and laws and what not.

    The problem is Congress has been bad at doing it's job for so long not that the executive has simply taken to doing it for them.

    I want a Democrat Congress and president willing to say you know what, fuck you guys especially, after these 4 years.

    [–] UPDATE (College Roommate) CaptainTripps82 4 points ago in askgaybros

    I'm kind of a sub top. One is personality, the other is sexual preference. Not sure why people always equate the two. I often have to pretend when hooking up. Verse guys tend to get it more, even tho I'm not verse.

    Oh completely. You make them into a circle, paint, and cover it in those giant bulbs, garland and bows. I manage a retail store and we even started getting in store promotional material advertising them, following the trend.

    Saves on packing the unsold ones away for next summer as well.

    They probably get curious because of how much time we spend playing with these things.

    Well they used to be bell shaped, not so much anymore.

    People have been making giant wreaths for Christmas with them around here

    [–] Buying deceased family member's home that has a reverse mortgage? CaptainTripps82 80 points ago in personalfinance

    I think what they are trying to tell you is that the will probably doesn't actually transfer ownership, if the bank has already purchased the house, which is how a reverse mortgage works. That mortgage agreement supercedes the intent of the will. You can't give something away that you've already sold legally to someone else.

    [–] Bank of America vs. USAA, when my wallet got stolen CaptainTripps82 2 points ago in personalfinance

    They definitely told you, in writing, explanation of benefits, and probably several missed calls.

    [–] Obamas buy a $15M house? Seems prime for an ol freckles rant CaptainTripps82 8 points ago in BillBurr

    You didn't make a statement, you insulted someone. That doesn't merit refutation.

    [–] Obamas buy a $15M house? Seems prime for an ol freckles rant CaptainTripps82 4 points ago in BillBurr

    Well they were Ivy league educated lawyers before he became a full time public servant. There's are least upper middle class money in that.

    [–] Obamas buy a $15M house? Seems prime for an ol freckles rant CaptainTripps82 3 points ago in BillBurr

    I mean, Obama jokes are not exactly on the cutting edge... That's literally what the segment of the country that supports Trump wanted and had heard for the last decade. It's even more cliched, and usually toothless given the comparisons.

    [–] There will be millions of graves that contain just a skeleton and a pair of breast implants. CaptainTripps82 1 points ago in Showerthoughts

    That's like saying Africa or Asia are one place. I'd assume a lot of it is based around available land or the lack thereof. America is overflowing with cemeteries because there's so much space that it doesn't encroach on living areas much, tho some places here do things differently based on local necessity. Like in New Orleans they mostly bury above ground in crypts because of the high water table and flooding.

    [–] These huge blueberries I found. CaptainTripps82 1 points ago in mildlyinteresting

    Neither have I, but I think I must have learned about the shoe guy from fairy tales or animated movies, it's possibly books I read myself as a kid. Hard to pinpoint, can't really recall not knowing the term.

    And my grandma made a pretty good peach cobbler, tho I was always partial to her lemon meringue myself.

    I mean... I'm American and under 40 and I don't remember ever not knowing what cobbler was and what a cobbler does.
